Randle has been charged in Sedgwick County (Kansas) with one count of criminal threat for allegedly threatening a jail deputy last month, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Per ESPN.com, Randle is due back in court on July 6. The running back, who was released by the Cowboys this past November, also has preliminary hearings in two pending felony cases (also in Sedgwick County) on July 26.
Following another arrest on Sunday morning, Joseph Randle was charged with aggravated battery, drug possession, and criminal damage to property, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Randle cannot avoid breaking the law, as the arrest marks his third since he was released by the Cowboys on Nov. 3, and fifth overall since October of 2014. Booked into Sedgwick County jail in Wichita, Kan. at 8 AM on Sunday, his bail has been set at a lofty $100,000, which could be the final straw in his NFL pursuits. In addition to any legal ramifications, Randle is subject to further suspension for repeated violations of the league's personal conduct policy.
Joseph Randle was arrested on a warrant for speeding on Monday morning, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Enduring his fourth arrest since October of 2014, Randle's most recent brush with the law didn't have any of the negative connotations associated with the first three. Apparently, he arrived at an ex-girlfriend's residence in Irving, TX early Monday morning searching for a place to sleep on his way to Kansas. However, he wasn't welcome, and an ensuing phone call to the police resulted in their arrival on the scene, where the warrant was discovered for speeding in a school zone. There's been no indication that he's attempting a return to the NFL, but his off-the-field behavior is certainly enough to keep teams from checking in on the 24-year-old running back.
The 23-year-old has seemingly been allergic to positive press over the last two years, and this latest brush with the law won't help his cause as he looks for another opportunity in the NFL. If Randle ends up signing anywhere in the offseason, he'd have to serve a four-game suspension stemming from his violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy, a ban that was handed down by the league shortly after he was released by the Cowboys earlier in November.
Joseph Randle has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Randle has not joined a team since being released by the Cowboys last week, but he will be forced to sit out four games if and when he does sign a new contract. Given the personal issues he is dealing with and the pending suspension, Randle will not be making a fantasy impact anytime soon.
